Storm Desmond gives Carlisle United a new State of the Art Strength and Conditioning facility.
When Storm Desmond hit the UK in December Carlisle was particularly badly hit- Carlisle United’s Brunton Park stadium was submerged under 8 feet of water. Once the floods had receded the damage to the stadium became apparent. The Club’s Strength and Conditioning facility at the stadium was devastated- all the equipment was condemned and had to be thrown away. The pitch was totally ruined and had to be relaid and the changing rooms and offices were all destroyed.
Perform Better were contacted to help Lee Fearn, the Fitness Coach and Neil Dalton- Head Physio to redesign and refurbish the facility. Once the repair work had been carried out Perform Better installed Duraflex Performance flooring throughout the area with a turf track down the middle of the room. In one half of the room a Strength area was created with two Performance Power Racks, Leg Press, Keiser Functional Trainer, Metal wall bars, Kettlebells, Dumbells, Benches and Plyo boxes. The other half of the room was made into a Cardio- Vascular and Rehab area with Keiser M3 Spinning Bikes, Wattbike, Cybex Treadmill, Cybex Arc Trainer, Concept Rower, Aerofloor and a Flowin board.
The Club now have a Strength and Conditioning facility fit for a Premier League team that will give the players and staff an excellent environment to train in.
